Hurricane Dorian has been downgraded to a Category 3 hurricane.

Places in southeast Florida are now under hurricane warning and many other places in the southeast like Georgia and the Carolinas have started evacuating ahead of the storm's path.

Florida has been taken out of the "cone of uncertainty" meaning there is no longer a chance Dorian will make landfall there.

For us here on the Central Coast, our big weather story is the heat and the wind.

Temperatures are down from Sunday but are still 5-10 degrees above normal, close to heat advisory levels.

Temperatures will stay warm again Tuesday, as a high pressure system continues to hold its grip on our area.

As that system starts to move towards the south however, it's generating a lot of monsoonal moisture.

Ventura and LA counties are under flash flood advisory as they could experience some heavy rains.

For us the only advisory heading into Monday night, is our small craft advisory in our inner and outer waters due to our strong wind gusts.

Patchy and dense fog is likely in the mornings and evening hours through Thursday, potentially diminishing visibility on your morning commutes.

Hurricane Juliette is continuing to move closer towards us, now around 930 miles away.

Its impacts will potentially be felt on Wednesday as our surf heights can jump to 4-6 ft with the possibility of hitting high surf criteria by Thursday, totaling 7-8ft.

Stay safe out there!
